When life gives you lemons, try not to be a cliche about it and make lemon curd! No need for a saucepan, our Quick Lemon Curd Recipe is made fresh in the microwave.
Lemon curd is a sweet spread that is versatile enough to be paired with so many delicious flavors and treats. We love spreading it on top of plain greek yogurt and bread with some fresh berries or on some tasty cookies. Your lemon curd can be used on layered cakes, pavlovas, beignets, ice cream, and lemon macarons, or in muffins, crepes, and lemon tarts. You can add some ginger to spice up the flavor of this lemon curd recipe.
Make sure you refresh on your canning skills for this lemon curd recipe. Since lemons are such a universally liked flavor, it makes a great gift.
If the microwave part of this recipe scares your or makes if feel like you’re somehow cheating – you’re not alone! It totally freaked some of us out when we tried it. Fortunately, we were pleasantly surprised with the buttery rich and silky smooth texture in our quick lemon curd recipe.
